Benefits of ready mix concrete

 

Ready mix concrete (also known as RMC) is essentially concrete that is specifically made for delivery from a central plant. Each individual batch of ready-made concrete is completely bespoke and is custom-made based on the clients’ requirements. 

There are several benefits of utilising ready-mix concrete and these include:

Using ready mix concrete significantly reduces costs as it curtails material consumption and storage costs too. It also eliminates the need to have a labourer on site to mix the cement on site too.

All batches of ready mix concrete are accurately measured, therefore there is no wastage which is also beneficial for reducing expenses.

Using ready mix concrete also reduces the need for onsite storage which is more cost effective and is also is more convenient too.

You can feel confident that you will receive a high-quality concrete product by using ready mix concrete.  The quality of RMC is always maintained as you are working to specific requirements.

You may be surprised to know that ready mix concrete is very eco-friendly! If we consider that the core ingredients of concrete are cement, water and aggregate, that are in abundant supply and don’t have as greater impact on the environment (whilst being extracted) 

As the batches of ready mix concrete are all custom made, there is little or no wastage and any surplus materials can be easily reclaimed and refurbished back to their natural condition with leftover ready mix concrete being readily reused or recycled.

We are the right people for you – let’s work together!

Case Study: 2600m3 Concrete Pour, Newport
31st July 2018

The brief

The client required 2600m3 of ready mix concrete in total for the floor of a new warehouse under construction, which when completed would provide an extra 70,000 square feet for bulk storage facilities at Alexandra Dock.

The solution

Our team was approached by the client to supply the concrete mix for the project, however, due to the warehouse’s size, the job needed to be undertaken over 6 separate pours of approximately 430m3 each. Our team suggested that the client consider using our 42m concrete pump, to ensure quick and efficient concrete delivery and to minimise their labour costs.

Our concrete pump made easy work of supplying the ready mix concrete on all occasions, navigating under the warehouse ceiling with ease. As a result of our work, the concrete floor of the new warehouse was completed both on time and on budget.

The Many Benefits of Liquid Screed Flooring
24th July 2018

Liquid screed is becoming an increasingly popular flooring option for internal areas, but why? We discuss the unmissable benefits of liquid screed flooring.

Easy to install

An attractive benefit of liquid screed for homeowners and DIY jobs is how quick and easy it is to install compared with other screeds. In fact, liquid screed flooring can be installed 10 times faster than sand cement screed! Not only does it require less manpower, it also requires minimal installation equipment other than some prior preparation and a concrete pump, which makes it an excellent hassle-free flooring option.

Best option for underfloor heating

There’s no better way to capitalise on your underfloor heating system than liquid screed flooring. Liquid screed when poured coats the pipes entirely, eliminating air bubbles and maximising conductivity.

Due to the fact that less depth of liquid screed is required when compared with more traditional screeds, heat also has less distance to travel through the floor, meaning that heat is much more effectively transferred throughout the floor.

Levels uneven surfaces

One of the main benefits of liquid screed is that due to its improved flowability and liquid state, it easily reaches the corner of rooms and evens out any bumps on the surface of the floor.

Dries quickly

If you want an internal flooring project done as quickly as possible, then liquid screed is the ideal choice, as liquid screed flooring can handle light foot traffic after just 24 hours!

Reduced chance of cracking

Our Wirghtflow liquid screed flooring is specially designed to reduce the risk of cracking and curling, leaving you with an even surface finish each time!


Does liquid screed flooring sound ideal for your project? Our Wrightflow liquid screed is the perfect solution for DIY and commercial concreting projects alike! Get in touch with our team today on 0117 958 2090.

Tips for laying concrete mixes in hot weather
13th July 2018

If you are laying your own concrete mix this summer, here’s how you can guarantee that hot weather doesn’t ruin the curing process.

Why is it important to keep concrete mixes cool as they set?

The hotter the external temperature, the faster the concrete will cure. This is problematic because the concrete mix needs to hydrate as part of the curing process. 

This process essentially involves the formation of crystals as the concrete absorbs water. When the surrounding temperature is too hot, this process is sped up, meaning that these crystals form too quickly and don’t strengthen as well as they should.

Water also evaporates from the surface of fresh concrete too quickly during hot weather, which results in a weak surface layer more prone to plastic shrinkage and cracking.

How do I keep my concrete mix cool during hot weather?

  • Invest in ready mix concrete delivered straight to your site so you don’t have to worry about mixing the concrete and laying it before it dries out.
  • Avoid laying concrete at the hottest part of the day, between 11-3pm.
  • Use a suitable concrete mix in your project. For example, set retarding concrete mixes slow down the curing process, making them ideal for use in hot weather.
  • Keep all your equipment in the shade until you are ready to use it. This includes metal chutes and wheelbarrows used for transportation of the concrete.
  • Ensure that you have a sufficient workforce to lay the concrete quickly.
  • Make sure that you are well prepared to receive the ready mix concrete delivery.
  • Cover the concrete with a plastic sheet in order to create shade and prevent evaporation as the concrete mix cures.

If you are inexperienced at laying concrete in hot weather, then it’s always wise to seek the advice of a professional. We can provide help and guidance on how to properly lay your DIY or commercial concrete. Get in touch today on 0117 958 2090.

How durable is fully cured concrete in hot weather?

Once fully cured, concrete is much more tolerant of high temperatures when compared with other common road and paving materials, such as asphalt, which begins to melt at around 50 degrees. 

With temperatures reaching above 30 degrees in many parts of the UK this summer, and ground temperatures reaching much higher, these asphalt roads have already started to cause problems, even trapping a bin lorry and its driver in Berkshire. 

Alternatively, regular concrete is not affected by heat until it reaches around 400 degrees, making it the far superior choice for avoiding lengthy and pricey repair jobs.


Laying concrete mixes in hot weather can be tricky. We supply ready mix concrete mixes that are batched with your requirements in mind. Don’t hesitate to contact our team of concreting experts for concrete delivery and advice.
